    Juno History The Juno Awards are named in honor of Pierre Juneau, who was the very first President of the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission and former President of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. In the early 1970s, Juneau was the architect of the CRTCs Canadian content regulations which require that a certain percentage of radio and television time be devoted to programming or music which is produced in Canada. This action created a market for Canadian music and fueled the subsequent boom in music production. In 1971, Juneau received a special Juno Award, being named Canadian music industry Man of the Year.

    The Juno Award was originally called the RPM Gold Leaf Awards, created by RPM Magazine publishers. They were awarded for the first time in 1970. That evening, 250 people showed up at the doors, which was twice the number of people who had actually been invited. Anne Murray had the flu and almost didnt make it to the ceremony. The name was changed to Juno Awards the following year, simplifying Juneaus name.

    The ceremony was broadcast on TV for the first time in 1975. CBC had the rights at the time

    Starting in 1964, RPM Magazine polled its readers to determine the best artists in Canada, releasing the results in December. From 1970 to 1973, winners of the Juno Awards were announced in RPM Magazine prior to the awards night. Starting in 1974, the award winners were not made public until the Juno ceremonies.

    HoPPersMany types of bugs and animals hop. There are also hoppers of other sorts: hopper cars on trains, hoppers that are used on farms and people who hop (or maybe they jump) on trampolines! Usually when we think of insect hoppers, grasshoppers and crickets come to mind. These insects from the order Orthoptera have powerful hind legs that allow them to propel themselves long distances. Also noteworthy about the order Orthoptera (sounds a little like opera, right?) is that these insects sing by performing stridula-tion, which is the action of rubbing parts of their bodies together. National Geographic named the wierd frog-hopper bug the Worlds Greatest Leaper in 2003. The froghopper is a sap-sucker that coats plants with foamy spittle yuk! Froghoppers are about 1/5 of an inch (6 mm) long and can leap an amazing 28 inches (70 mm). That equals 140 times their body length. For a human to leap this distance, in comparison, would mean a long-jump record of 840 feet (256 m)! According to neurobiologist, Malcolm Bur-rows, of the University of Cambridge, in the United Kingdom, the secret to the long jumps of some insects is a specialized catapult mecha-nism that allows the insects to store and then release energy. Kangaroos, the largest hopping animal, can cover a lot of ground with their hops. When kan-garoos need to go faster, they dont increase the frequency of their hops, instead they increase the distance for each hop. Kangaroos can bound 25 feet (7.6 m) or more forward and 6 feet (1.8 m) high in a single hop. The back legs of kangaroos always move in tan-dem except when swimming! The greater the range of a kangaroos hop, the more energy harnessed in their muscles and ten
